An Overview Of Three Types Of Ultrasound Scans

An ultrasound scan is a non-invasive way to see what's going on inside your body. It creates real-time images using sound waves and does not emit radiation. The sound waves are directed at the area of your body being investigated using a transducer. Echoes are then reflected back, and this is what allows an image to be created. The image is displayed on a linked monitor and your doctor or nurse can tell you what they see right away.
